Customers coming into M&S Leeds that morning will be joining more than five million people across the UK who are expected to take part in today’s coffee morning.
Macmillan is aiming to raise over £15million to help ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
Phil Schulze, store manager at M&S Leeds, said:
“The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning provides a great reason to gather with friends, family, or work colleagues, put your feet up and enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake and all in aid of a truly worthwhile charity.
“We hope our customers can come along today to show support for a cause that affects so many of us.”
Clara White, Macmillan fundraising manager for Leeds said:
“We are proud to be working with M&S for a fourth year and we would encourage everyone to come along to the M&S Café at the Leeds store.
“There will be lots of exciting things happening in store and by simply enjoying a cup of coffee and a slice of cake, people can support us in our drive to ensure no one faces cancer alone.”
Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning calls on people across the country to gather with friends and family to hold a coffee morning.
In addition, customers can also support the cause by going to over 300 M&S Cafés nationwide and buying:
- 14 select items sold in M&S Cafés. 5p of the retail selling value of these items will be donated to Macmillan
- A Victoria Sponge cake from M&S Food halls. 20p of the retail selling value of this popular dessert will be donated to Macmillan
- A cup of coffee – M&S will donate a further 50p for every coffee sold today
